What could be more thrilling for young space fans than an evening in the company of Tim Peake? He’s coming to York Theatre Royal this autumn and ticket sales are already rocketing. During Limitless: In Conversation With Astronaut Tim Peake, he will relive his six-month mission to the International Space Station and the surprising journey that took him there.
Tim will talk about what life in space is really like: the sights, the smells, the fear, the exhilaration and the deep and abiding wonder of the view from space.
He’ll tell the story of his path to becoming the first Briton in space for nearly 20 years, telling tales of his time training in the British army, and as an Apache helicopter pilot and flight instructor deployed to Bosnia, Northern Ireland and Afghanistan.
Tim will also discuss how it felt to be selected for the European Space Agency from over 8000 candidates and the six years of training that followed; learning Russian on the icy plains of Siberia, and coping with darkness and claustrophobia in the caves of Sardinia and under the oceans of the United States.
In an intimate and inspirational conversation, the audience will hear exclusive stories from Tim’s time in space, and he will share his enormous passion for space and for science. There will also be a chance to ask Tim questions in the audience Q&A.
